We are just a few days away from the Travelers Conference in Las Vegas – so our topic for this week surrounds the lights, the glamour, and the magic of Las Vegas. If you’ve never traveled to Vegas or if you’re a seasoned pro, there is something new that everyone can learn. Here are a few tips to make your trip to the City of Lights a memorable one:
- Take in a show or two: Las Vegas is known to have some of the best shows in the country. From Cirque de Soleil, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, the Bellagio Fountain show, Blue Man Group – the possibilities for a good show are endless.
- Carry a light jacket, sunscreen, and water with you everywhere: Las Vegas is in the southern part of Nevada. It can get really hot and it can get really cold considering it’s remotely near a desert.
- If you can, avoid peak dinner times: It’s Las Vegas and we can only imagine that their dinner rush is not one to be messed with. You are going to be intermixed with people from all over the world in one of U.S.A’s most touristy cities. Peak dinner times are from 6-8 PM in Vegas so try to compromise with your meals.
- Take lots and lots of pictures: You see pictures on websites, Google, Facebook, etc. but nothing else beats your own picture in Sin City.
- Take a few poker lessons before you hit the casinos in Vegas: Card games can be a little tricky especially for those who have never played before. Consider taking a few lessons before your trip to Vegas. Sure you won’t be sitting in the High Rollers Only section of the casino, but it’s a start.
- Explore Las Vegas’ history: Las Vegas is rich in history. The casinos and the shows were not built overnight. Go to a few museums like the Mob Museum, Las Vegas Natural History Museum, Nevada State Museum, and the Las Vegas Art Museum. And there are a few like Madame Tussauds, Burlesque Hall of Fame, Pinball Hall of Fame, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition inside the Luxor, and the Neon Museum.
- Go people watching: People watching in Vegas is at a whole new level. There are so many characters and personalities on the strip. Take an afternoon to sit and enjoy some of the people there.
- Las Vegas is open 24 hours: This is one of the cities that never sleeps. If you are craving a pizza and a cup of coffee at 4 am, you can have those. You can grab dinner past 9 PM, while most restaurants are closing in other places.
- Be a good pedestrian: You have to pay close attention to your surroundings, especially on the Strip. Traffic is scary and the majority of people are on foot trying to respect the unspoken rules of the sidewalk. Look right, look left, and look right again and vice versa – just be cognizant of your surroundings when you’re in a new city and even a city that you’re familiar with.
- And lastly, have fun: Las Vegas has countless of options of shows to see, places to go, and things to do. Don’t miss out on one of the best cities to visit.
